At the back of the San Marcos Municipal Airport, is one of the few remaining World War II airplane hangars, now the home of the Centex Wing of the Commemorative Air Force and the organization’s museum. This hangar is one of three built on the site in 1942 during the desperate days that followed the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. Two of the hangars have long since been demolished, but this one remains. Built of wood, this voluminous structure houses several World War II airplanes including a Mitchell B-25 twin-engine bomber, similar to the ones used in Lt Col. Jimmy Doolittle’s daring raid on Japan five months after Pearl Harbor. The dinner dance is an annual fund raiser to support the WWII airplanes, keep them flying, help to maintain this old hangar and keep WWII history alive.

Address : Centex Hangar at the San Marcos, Texas Airport, 2249 Airport Rd. San Marcos Texas
